Backstory: Candy-O, I need you so…this shot has enough Barthesian punctum that it produced in me a sense of loss, as does Ocasek’s wonderful song – with vocals by the sadly late, always great Ben Orr.

Locale: Memory Lane (aka Van Duzer Street)

Equipment: Nikon D5500 / Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR


Candy-O is my favourite Cars album with Heartbeat City a close second. The Cars – Candy-O (title track performed live in Germany):
